Winter 2012 Preview: The Good, The Bad and the Mundane


So

This has nothing to do with the Winter 2012 season, but I needed a picture for this space.

The Autumn 2011 season has finally finished, with a few shows continuing into next season, the majority have concluded and of were largely enjoyable. Soon the winter 2012 season will start with high school romance, space pirates, devils in mini skirts, giant robots, random nonsense and 4-kome gag shows. I will not be watching everything, but there are certainly shows that have piqued my interest, although I am not writing about them in any particular order.

Anime Review – Maken-Ki – Your standard fanservice anime with indestructible lingerie, essential for all fighting girls and women


Maken-Ki is a show that filled the ‘fanservice’ slot for series this season, much like shows such as Seikon no Qwazer and Manyuu Hikenchou, although not quite as bad as either. It is also a show that actually got quite boring for me as it went on, and I felt that overall it was trying too hard to please, something to discuss later in my review.

Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai – Review – Why having a perverted archer around is a good thing


So Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai (Majikoi) has finally finished, and it was a series that I very much enjoyed, even if it is very flawed and I have some issues with it. Majikoi is a classic Harem with fanservice, dirty jokes and double entendres, basically its pretty dumb fun. Majikoi is of course an anime adapted from an eroge by Minato Soft; it is a ecchi harem series with some romance and a bit of fighting involved. There is some form of serious plot running through this series, but for the most part it is ignored and only ever appears at the very beginning and during the last couple of episodes. This is in fact one of the main issues that I have with the series overall, the plot/story doesn’t make much sense and most of the time doesn’t even appear to be included in the series. The story takes place in Kawakami city and follows Yamato, a second-year high school student at Kawakami high school. He is surrounded by five girls who are all in love with him and constantly try to get his attention, although in the case of Momoyo, she sort of abuses the fact that Yamato confessed to her. There are other characters, but they don’t seem to have such a large role to play in the story, but are likely to be more important in both the game and the manga.
